Netflix finally headed to Wii, PS3 Thanks to a recent job listing posted on Netflix's website, rumors have flared across the Internet that the company will finally be bringing its streaming Watch Instantly library to the Wii and PS3.
The listing is searching for an "Engineering Leader -- Gaming Platforms," an engineer with "deep experience developing and testing media rich applications on current generation gaming consoles."

"Expect to help build a small technology team to rapidly prototype and iterate on a variety of platforms," the post adds.

There is no guarantees that this listing will lead to Netflix streaming service on either console, but it appears that the company is at least trying to expand their presence in the console market.

MS and Hulu need to get off their asses and work something out. PlayOn is buggy when it comes to Hulu. Skipping forward/backwards never works, FF and Rewind are janky sometimes, it's down like 20% of the time I use it via PlayOn buy ok on PC, etc etc.

You may not but many others do. With the 360 a person has to pay for Gold Live! access to even be able to use Netflix. With the Wii or PS3 you don't have to pay for internet so access would be free.
